    Default Enc michuacana

    Mine blooms every year though I suspect my culture leaves something to be desired as I have never had the big sprays I have seen on line. The lip is the most attractive part, IMO. It is fragrant -- and though I would not classify it as pleasantly fragrant, neither would I call it a "stench". Kind of a chemical sort of scent.

    Hopefully someday my encyclia will take pity on me and grow a few nice new leads and then bloom. Yours is lovely, great job!

    *GRIN* Nice plant...

    It must be found in the Michoucan area of Mexico. Michoucana is what you call a lady from this area

    This looks to me like an Encyclia Parviflora, not Michuacana, it is still a beauty though! Very nice.

    Hmm, well it looks like I may need to change a tag! Judging by the pics in Jay's orchid encyc, I'd have to agree with you, Lambert.

    Yes it is though I would not go so far as to say it is a pleasant scent. Rather a bit more of a chemical type fragrance. Not unpleasant either, though.
